What Jesus Loved

Those were troublous days, days of unrest, of unhappiness, of disease, bondage to material beliefs, sin, and woe, days of inequalities, of social and economic instability, of dictatorship and inhumanity. Seeking surcease from their trials, people had come from far and near to touch the hem of the Christly garment and be made whole. There were lepers to be cleansed, sick to be made whole, and blind whose sight needed to be restored.

The zealous disciples, guarding the precious moments of the Master, would have brought to him for healing only those who in their estimation had a claim on him. This was neither time nor place for children, they thought. Let the little ones wait a more convenient season. But rebuking the disciples, Jesus said (Luke 18:16), "Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God."
